Cooktown

If you're planning a holiday in Cooktown, Far North Queensland, here at Infinity Holidays we have the best value deals on flights, accommodation, tours and package deals to suit your holiday requirements and budget.

Cooktown is a small frontier town located in the far north of Tropical North Queensland. Cooktown boasts a unique character and great charm and was relatively isolated and only accessible by four-wheel drive until a sealed road opened in 2006. The area is renowned for its great natural beauty, and for being Australia's first European settlement. Every June, the town celebrates Cooktown's history with the Cooktown Endeavour Festival, which includes a colourful re-enactment of Captain Cook's landing in 1770.

Cooktown boasts beautiful beaches and proximity to the Wet Tropics World Heritage area and the Great Barrier Reef. Activities include safari tours through dense tropical rainforest, visits to the Western Cape York Turtle Conservation Project and cruises to the Great Barrier Reef for swimming, snorkelling and scuba diving amid myriad bright fish and corals in clear tropical waters.
